What is there to say about Charlie Brown Farms that can do it justice? It is the home of everything from snacks and trinkets to dinosaurs and toys. It is Antelope Valley’s Largest gift shop, it has the world’s largest beef jerky, and it can easily kill an hour of your life. If this sounds like something you would be interested in then I implore you to read on for all the information.

In 1929, Charlie Brown Farms was nothing more than a small fruit stand on the old highway. Fast forward 80 years, and it is now situated on 6 acres with 1 of those acres being solely for parking. The fruit stand houses over 1,000 types of candy and items in its three buildings and two patios.
Like I said above, to call this a store would be an understatement. It would probably be better to call it the Wal-Mart of roadside candy and gifts.
When you enter the store, you will see all sorts of candy and food. What sets this place apart though is that there is more than one unique store on the compound.
As you explore you will see a store dedicated to large statues.
Another store dedicated to toys.
And yet another store dedicated to dolls. These are just a few of the treasures you will stumble upon.
When you have looked through the store, you can wander outside where there is a collection of dinosaur statues and a bunch of tables to eat at; along with more shops, of course.
Here are some of the stranger things I found there:
No 2 Pencil
Fudge Dipped Jalapeno
World’s Largest Beef Jerky
Yes, I would recommend Charlie Brown Farms. It is pretty much impossible to leave with nothing, even if you came in not wanting to spend money. I left with Tabasco chocolate and a fly swatter that claps two hands together to get the fly, and that was with showing a lot of restraint.
If you make your way to Charlie Browns, I would love to hear what kind of crazy thing you stumble on in the comments.
